The Re-birth

I. Forewords:

Where do people come from? What are their missions? Where will they end? These questions are often asked by people. Many religions and societies sought answers to these questions. Different religions and societies had different answers to these questions, yet none of the answers satisfied human curiosities. Human relations still play an important role in human's mind. Buddhism carefully explains the questions above using the Law of Reincarnation and also clearly defines human position with respect to all other beings in the universe.

II. Misconception about human relationship:

Four misconception about human relationship:

1. Life is short: Belief that humans only exist in the present life, live for a lifespan, and everything will disappear after death.

2. Eternity: Belief that the physical form will deteriorate and there is an everlasting spirit. The spirit of a person will be either in the Heaven or Hell depending on the actions of that person committed in one life.

3. No relationship between lives: Belief that there is a life after death, yet there is no relationship between the previous life and the next.

4. Upward-reincarnation: Belief that everything reincarnates upward.

III. Definition of Re-birth:

It's the evolution composed of six eras in which beings naturally evolve.

IV. The re-birth of every existence:

The Law of Reincarnation is a law that applies to all existences.

1. Ecology: For example: oranges, the orange tree germinates from the seed and then produces oranges. The same process repeats itself.

2. Rain: Rain is the result of the evaporation of water and the encounter with cold air; together they form clouds; the clouds are melted when encounted with hot air.

3. Heat: Heat is hidden in the trees, it is not recognizable by sight, but it can only be seen when friction takes place. The trees breathe CO2 for heat restoration.

V. The cause of re-birth:

The re-birth of the human is based on the following factors:

1. Strength of the action: Humans cause action through their body, speech, thought. These karmas eventually accumulate and become a major factor which leads to the next life of a person. This factor keeps building through life cycles, therefore humans can hardly escape the life cycle. There are 4 kinds of karma that usually guide the human loop through the life cycle.

a. Accumulation of Karma: Karma committed in many former births.

b. Habits Karma: Karma created bases upon habits and tradition.

c. Most Dominate Karma: This Karma has stronger effect than the previous two.

d. New Ending of Life Karma: Karma created when a person approaches death.

2. Life and Desire: Nobody wants to die, therefore they will try to do anything to save themselves from death. In addition, their mind are not fully satisfied with desires and this will force a person to reincarnate to satisfy his/her desires.

3. Ignorance: We see ourselves as permanent, and have misconceptions about things. Therefore, we, as humans are willing to do anything for ourselves without consideration of the endeffect. This is why humans can not escape the cycle of re-birth.

VI. Characteristics of Re-birth:

Depending on one's karma in the past, it decides where one ends up in the next life. If one's karma in the past was good then one will end up in a happy situation or otherwise one will end up with a life of


VII. Facts about Re-birth:

1. We can be at a different place in the reincarnation cycle at any moment depending on our thought: If we are thinking about good deeds then we are on the bright side but if we are thinking about wrong-deeds then we are on the dark side.

2. There are six different levels of re-birth cycle can be seen in this world: The prison, punishment, war, etc..., are the scenes that represent Hell.

3. Prodigies: Pascal famous in astronomy at the age of eight. Båch CÜ Di knew how to make poems at the age of five. These evidences did not occur by coincidence, but they are the karmas from many former births.

4. Stories of many former births: There are stories of former births told by Buddha, the Bhoddisatta, and a few came from people who remembered about their past lives.

5. Relationship among people: There are occasions where one can easily make an acquaintance with a new person who one has not meet previous. However, there are times that one hates a person when one sees him/her one has never met. These occurrences prove there are connections in which two people have met in a past life and there is a like or dislike between the two. Therefore, in this life there is a strong effect from the past acquaintances.

VIII. Conclusion:

Based on The Law of Reincarnation, Buddha has taught:

1. The main origin of suffering is ignorance. Because of ignorance, many bad karmas had been created and these lead human to the cycle of reincarnation.

2. People evolve in the re-birth cycle, and depending upon their actions they will know where they will end up. The value of a person depends on his/her thought at any moment.

3. Because humans evolve in the re-birth cycle, everyone can be a relative of the other. Buddhism introduces the Law of Reincarnation to help humans escape the cycle of reincarnation.
